    I was very excited seeing this bottle on Drinks Planet… This is a very rare flask. Unfortunately the level is too low, which ruins the value of the bottle for most collectors. I would have offered $400 had the level been 1/2″ higher but as it is I don’t want it… I am just so disappointed!

    My father is 91 yrs old and tells the story of raiding a luffwafe warehouse and uncovering case upon case of Hennessy 3 star. He says that they pulled the radios out of the armored car and packed the holes with Hennessy. My son and I would like to have a drink with him to celebrate his homecoming. If the bottle is still available I am definitely interested
